Illustration Paul Bush
There are lots of examples at http://basangpanaginip.blogspot.com of vector art produced in Adobe Illustrator that blur the line between photo and illustration. Some of the comments seem to point to the fact that as the original image is scanned and then used as the basis for this, that copyright is breached and that this is also, well, not very creative. I think that it is important to work in these areas, as techniques can be developed that can be used elsewhere. The issue of creativity is a thorny one. Were the Dutch masters less creative because they produced realistic images of their subjects? I dont think so. The example below is by Japanese artist Yukio Miyamoto.
